proper way to removing front tire

Hey guys,
when you're taking the front (or rear for that matter) off, do you first remove & hang the calipers? I usually just remove the tire and kind of slide the rotors off the calipers and kind of wiggle & slide the rotors back in between the pads when I mount them. Not sure if this way is wrong but sure is quicker...This is the method okay?

My wheels won't come off if I don't remove the calipers first.If you can get it off without scratching everything up then you're fine.

The owner’s manual and service manual for my bike reads that you should remove and hang the calipers
